Xakia Launches A New, Simple, Affordable Legal Matter Management Solution Built for Small, In-House Legal Teams
Announcement posted by Xakia 19 May 2023
Melbourne, Australia, and Kansas City, Missouri, USA — Xakia, a leading provider of in-house legal matter management software, today introduced a new solution designed specifically to meet the needs of smaller in-house legal teams. The new solution builds on Xakia’s deep, worldwide legal tech experience, providing an “out-of-the-box” matter management solution that can be set up in less than an hour and supports intake and triage, spend and budget management, resource planning, as well as analytics and reporting, all for $70 USD a user per month.
Legal matter management and other legal tech solutions have proliferated in recent years, yet that growth has been unequal. Although half of in-house legal teams have 10 lawyers or fewer, compared to larger organizations, these smaller teams are 120% less likely to have access to a legal matter management solution, 71% less likely to have access to legal analytics software, and 56% less likely to have access to spend management tools.
“Historically, there haven’t been a great many options supporting smaller in-house legal teams,” said Xakia Founder and Group CEO Jodie Baker. “Between high up-front costs and the extensive customization and ongoing management required, many organizations couldn’t take advantage of the latest wave of legal technology. Today I’m very proud that now even the smallest teams can take advantage of the same efficiency, visibility, and accountability that Xakia enables for our thousands of users worldwide.”
Starting today, in-house legal teams of any size can try Xakia at no cost for 14 days. A flexible out-of-the-box solution, teams can customize and launch Xakia in less than 1 hour. Xakia includes a full suite of legal matter management capabilities, including centralized and searchable resource planning, data analytics to prove the value delivered by the legal team, connected intake and spend management workflows, and more.
Best of all, Xakia is making legal matter management software affordable. Teams anywhere in the world can use Xakia for $70 USD per user per month, a fraction of the cost of traditional matter management solutions. For smaller in-house legal teams, which had until now often found themselves forced to rely on a complex system of spreadsheets and filing processes, Xakia has leveled the playing field.
"Using Xakia's streamlined intake process and internal client portal have been so much more efficient for me,” said Chuck Kable, Chief Legal Officer, Axiom Medical. "I can see what the business needs, what their deadlines are, and I have a place to store all relevant information, including emails, documents and even conversations about strategy. It provides transparency and visibility into where I am relative to a deadline on a given matter. If the Sales team wants to know if I’ve looked at a contract yet, they don’t need to send multiple emails and messages, they can log into the Xakia portal for visibility, or provide me (General Counsel) with real time updates to information or feedback on a matter.”
“For a small legal department, Xakia is excellent,” said Guy Smith, General Counsel at Upper Hutt City Council. “I didn’t want a legal platform that would be like climbing Mt Everest. I wanted a matter management platform with a light footprint, that was simple to use and easy to implement. Xakia made it extremely easy. We were up and running quickly and without investing much time or money.”
